Thursday TV ratings: Katy Keene down, Carol’s Second Act up

Katy Keene saw a dangerous drop in the Thursday TV ratings. Meanwhile, Carol’s Second Act was one of the few up. Here’s a look at Feb. 13’s results.

The Thursday TV ratings for Feb. 13 are in, and it sadly wasn’t a great night for most of TV. Katy Keene and Indebted fell sharply, while Carol’s Second Act was one of the few that ticked up. Here’s a look at the results.

Out of all CW shows, Katy Keene is the only one not yet renewed. While it did get 13 extra scripts ordered, it’s not got an official Season 2 just yet, and there’s a chance that it won’t. The show lost 33% of its demo and 10% of its total audience, which were both already low for the series debut last week.

There are some saving graces for Katy Keene at the moment. The CW doesn’t mind low ratings and there are three renewed shows ranking lower out of all CW scripted shows. There’s still time for the ratings to stabilize.

It wasn’t the only new series to see a drop in the ratings. Indebted lost 26% of its demo and 27% of its total audience, to already drop to CW levels in the demo. Tommy also lost 10% of its demo and 8.5% of its total audience. While not as sharp a decline, it’s still relatively low for CBS TV crime dramas.

Deputy also saw another drop after looking like it was stabilizing last week. This is one of the new shows I’m sure isn’t making it through another year.

However, it was a difficult night for TV. Station 19 lost 4% of its demo and A Million Little Things lost 10% of its demo. Young Sheldon lost 1.5% of its total audience, while Outmatched lost 21% of its demo and 18% of its total audience. Brooklyn Nine-Nine lost 10% of its audience and 5% of its demo, while Will & Grace dropped 16% and 18% respectively.

There were only two shows to see an uptick in both metrics: Carol’s Second Act and Law & Order: SVU.

Not everything is going to be canceled, and the networks may take into consideration that it was the night before Valentine’s Day. Some couples would opt for celebrating the night before due to work or other commitments.

Out of all the shows, it’s the newer ones that need to be concerned. Drops between series debuts and second episodes are common, but they need to stabilize eventually.
